The French press goes by various names around the world. In Italy the press is known as a caffettiera a stantuffo. In New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa the apparatus is known as a coffee plunger, and coffee brewed in it as plunger coffee. Its French name is cafetière à piston, though French speakers also use generalized trademarks, notably Melior or Bodum. In the UK and the Netherlands the device is known as a cafetière, the French word for coffee maker or pot. In the United States and Canada, it is known as a French press or coffee press.

STEP 1

Heat up your empty french press with hot water. This ensures that the best extraction takes place by maintaining temperature while brewing.

STEP 2

Take your scale and measure out 56g of coffee. You’ll want to grind this so that is same consistency of breadcrumbs.

STEP 3

Go ahead and add your grounds to the french press and fill it up halfway with water just off the boil. Wait around one minute stir coffee and grounds and then fill up the rest of the french press with your water.

STEP 4

After you have waited around 4 minutes go ahead and push the plunger down and get ready to enjoy your amazing cup of coffee.
